Hamberger & Weiss: Celebrating 25 Years

Hamberger & Weiss has provided the highest quality representation of employers and insurance carriers in defense of workers' compensation claims for 25 years. With 40 lawyers in our Buffalo and Rochester offices, we are the largest firm in New York devoted exclusively to workers' compensation defense. We limit our practice to representation of employers, insurance carriers and Third Party Administrators (TPAs). We do not represent injured workers.

A Full-Service Workers' Compensation Defense Practice

Gone are the days of handling only hearings and appeals. As the WCL landscape has changed, we have been at the fore, working with our clients, the Board, industry, bar groups, and legislators to shape the discussion and provide a full spectrum of legal services in the workers' compensation arena. These include:

  • Defense of claims from initial file review through trial and summations
  • Section 32 settlement negotiation and preparation
  • Calculation and submission of Medicare set-asides (MSAs)
  • Handling conditional payment recovery demands
  • Loss Transfer arbitrations
  • WCL Section 120 discrimination claims
  • Defense of General Municipal Law 207-c claims
  • Research projects for clients on major issues affecting workers' compensation
  • Statewide appellate practice before the Board, Appellate Division, and Court of Appeals of the State of New York
